    Hey guys,

    Just got some notices from that a bunch of my sites are now malware attack sites. Verified infection with http://sitecheck.sucuri.net/ .

    Tracked it back to AutomaticBacklinks plugin with the help one of my client's server admins. Simply deactivating the plugin in wordpress removes the malicious iframe injections, but I'm deleting the plugin as well.

    It's not just my network of sites, either. Friends of mine, people using different hosts, non-wordpress versions of ABL etc. It's over 50 of sites I checked, 7 of which I own or have any connection to.

    Hi, got the warnings in my webmasters tools for two of my sites this morning. 2 escaped and I have removed the plugins. Has anyone heard if the plugin owners have cleaned this up yet?
